I have been to this restaurant over many years and always get a superb meal. The steaks and the lamb is to die for. Staff, Paul and his family are so friendly and treat you like on of the family. Well done yet again for an excellent meal.

Unfortunately, the rate sometimes make a bad job with some restaurants. The food is ok, but the stuff was awful. Too long, too intrusive, the order was lost.. Can't recommend.

Food here was fantastic, plenty of traditional cypriot options to choose from and the waiter was helpful and talking through the menu and his recommendations. We had a real mixture of starters to share amongst the table and they were all great. The stuffed vine leaves particularly. For mains, most had either the lamb from the spit of kleftiko. The...

Might be a bit tricky to find this restaurant unless you know where you're going but it's worth the find. It was busy, it being a Saturday night, but the waiter found us a table outside. My husband had steak and I had meatballs. His steak was cooked perfectly and the meatballs were succulent and tasty. There was a good... More

This restaurant is a nice choice to spend a quiet evening far from the mad crowd of Ayia Napa. The location is nice and quiet and the staff nice and helpful. Traditional souvla, good food but nothing special.

On arrival , even though the restaurant was empty, we were placed behind a brick column round the back. Took 35 mins to get served and then again to get the bill. Food was ok, nothing special, but with that service I really wouldn't recommend the place! It should definitely not be rated no. 8!! There are much better places... More

We were recommended by a Jeep safari drover who knew the owner (George Michael for anyone interested). First of all I would like to mention that the 2 of us had ordered steak (sirloin and ribeye) they were cooked perfectly. Easily the best steak we have had. Now to explain the poor rating. The service was utterly horrendous after the... More
